OCCRWA Proudly Presents:
July 9 – July 22, 2012
The Ins and Outs of Pitching
with Julie Hurwitz
About the Class:
Want to learn how to throw a strike when pitching your novel or novella to an editor or agent? Learn the basics of pitching your story at a conference – whether it’s in a formal pitching session or a chance meeting in the elevator.
As an unpublished writer, what can you do to get your story in front of the right agents and editors sooner? The chance to sit down face to face with the agent or editor of your choice and pitch your story can make your knees knock and your voice quaver. Learn some techniques to help you relax and ensure a positive outcome from your pitch session – that all important request from an editor or agent to read your work.
In addition, we’ll discuss the elements that an editor or agent looks for when evaluating a story pitch, how to narrow your story down to a single logline and how to follow up on a request to see your material from an editor or agent.
NOTE: This class is only 2 weeks in length.
